A Spring Surprise

“I love spring,” said Mrs. Robin to herself, while feeding her three babies. “However, spring is a very busy season for me and my babies. Some days I barely have any time for myself.”

Mrs. Robin was busy cleaning out the nest. She didn’t see Ant approaching her.

“Good morning Mrs. Robin,” said Ant.

“Oh it’s you,” said Mrs. Robin, who wasn’t a big fan of Ant’s since the day he tried to trick her and ended up spending way too much time away from her babies.

“I know you are angry with me,” said Ant. “I have come to apologize for tricking you. I have felt bad about what I did and I want to make it up to you.”

Mrs. Robin was shocked by what Ant had just said to her. She was expecting more trouble from him. However, because she had been tricked by him once, she was a bit leary of him.

“I appreciate you trying to make up for tricking me that day,” said Mrs. Robin. “However, what can you do to make up for it? You are just a tiny little ant.”

“Well,” said Ant, reaching behind him and handing a gift-wrapped box to Mrs. Robin. “This should help.”

Ant had given Mrs. Robin a box of chocolates. She loved chocolate and hadn’t had any in ages. She also knew those chocolates were heavy and it must have taken some effort for Ant to bring them to her.

“This does make up for you teasing me that day,” said Mrs. Robin. “Thank you very much!”

Mrs. Robin gave Ant one of the chocolates. The two sat and talked. They found out they could actually be civil to one another. They were beginning to become friends.


Moral of this Story:

  • It is good to apologize for bad behavior.
  • Example: Ant apologized to Mrs. Robin for his bad behavior when he tried to trick her a few days ago.
